    Why Are We Here?

    What do you think was the cause of activity decline? Problems or issues resolved? Or, at least explored as far a possible. I know I don't feel the need to discuss my sps issues much any longer as people have helped me look at it from all angles and it is more or less stable. Wouldn't say I was cured, though. I think people are more "stuck" in major social media sites now and less likely to google about for a site like this.

    Support service for me when I found this site. And very helpful advice. At moment the UK has hit it's highest covid count. So this site might help with mental Health issues. As for Social media. Last year I saw docu about social media Called the "Social dilemma" and well let's just say you watch that and it will scare you from using Social media.

  6. Hiya Vic and thanks. Guess what, I had the vaccine a few days ago - just a slight sore arm, feel ok so far. Best wishes to you for a nice weekend 🌻 Like the Queen I had the AstraZeneca one.

    I think some members may feel better, yes. Others have moved on for various reasons, I imagine. The terrain is always changing.. I have wondered why there hasn't been more new members here. The new ones don't often seem to stay either. 🤷‍♀️ There does seem to be a greater need these days for the instant gratification of sites like facebook. Though I do use FB, this place will always be my "home." I prefer a slower pace and a smaller community.

    I use social media, but I mostly end up supporting others. I do enjoy seeing family photos and watching kids grow up. I generally wouldn't use Facebook to share a lot of problems, feels too wide open. I have always preferred to share in my blog here. Wayless, there was a time when this site was much more active, but activity has faded as the years have gone by. I sometimes miss the interactions with community members and friends.. SweetSue, Endless Night, Luna, Danni, David O, Smallstar, Finding My Way, Jai Jai, ken Ian..

    Seems there are few places in social media where you can be honest and discuss your problems. Most social media seems to me to be just another "competitive arena". Part of the problem is that, more and more, anonymous participation is being pushed out for "security" and "political" reasons. Most of us wouldn't want to discuss mental health issues on FaceBook, where anonymous participation isn't permitted, in front of everyone we know in our work and personal life. So, I would think there would be great demand for this site. But, I guess realizing that demand would require promotio

    Me too, doesn't worry me at all that the site is quiet, less to read! And if someone has a problem there are people here who can give good advice or support. I think the lack of new members is possibly due to the forum being a little less obvious in search results? Maybe they don't stay because they observe it is pretty quiet and feel awkward?

    You can use mewe on line too, though. I don't like to hand-out my phone number which is required for apps.

    Vic, I also like live music, humour and international news 🤩 Wayless, you make good points about the anonymity factor. Not heard of Mewe as yet.

    Like the VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and CDS and LPs Facebook is on its last legs so.to speak In other words MySpace = Facebook = Twitter now Twitter and Facebook are now been replaced by Mewe Same could be said for DVDs, blu ray, Cinema the dare I say it Normal TV With streaming services like Sky store, NowTV, Roku, Netflix, Amazon prime video.

    @geronimo if you ever do decide to go on Facebook know that you can really restrict it and keep it private if you understand the settings. For example on mine no one can see my friends, no one can find me via Google, no one can see the pages I like and no one can post on my page unless I approve it. Now if I comment on a public page then everyone in the world can see that. But I don’t do that very often. Facebook has been good for me during quarantine because I love live music, I like humor and international news. And the occasional touching base w old friends.

    I'm not even on social media, I just know it would not be good for me.

    @geronimo Thanks for info, I’m limited to what I read on the internet....people that I’ve asked in person, some of whom know people who have received the vaccine, seem to be in agreement that any illness from it comes from the booster injection, the second dose. My mother works in a place where they are eligible to get the first rounds of vaccinations, but she’s over 60 and has hypertension. I’m worried for her sake and because she’s the only family I have left. Hope your mother turns out ok with it, perhaps you could give an update after her injection? Thanks for the reply, take care.

  23. All sorts of things cancelled. I saw in the news that someone has invented a 5 minute results test for covid, so maybe eventually people will just 'test and go' before events?

    I know of a couple of people who have had the Pfizer one (first dose so far) with no prob other than a slightly sore arm. I have read reports that neither of those vaccines are particularly suitable for extreme allergy suffers too. Hopefully her doc could give accurate advice based her exact circumstances? My mum is over 80 and is due to have the vaccine on Friday - obviously there is hesitancy and worry in a sense but also there is with the risk of covid, it is all a balance. How likely is it that your mum will be potentially exposed to covid? Sending best wishes x have a

    I have been a member of this community for over 10 years. I have made friendships here that have been life changing. I have learned here, both by receiving support and by giving support to others. I have journaled here for many years. Part of my story is here. I have blogs that show my experiences in real time. I can go back now and read where I was, see my struggles and see how I have pushed through and grown. I have a message space here that spans over years that I shared with a friend who has since died. I'm grateful for all of this. I would be sad to lose this site and all of concrete memo

    Good questions, Mark. I don't know. But to me, this site provides the possibility of written contact with some people I know a bit and I like them and I like this possibility to come when it suits me and to 'interact'. It's perhaps more like a social network / medium now. When I remember "the old times", I have to admit I liked it here much more then. But it's not because I don't like the people who are now here, just... the greater number of contributors about more diversified topics was more stimulating and engaging and, mainly, provided more possibilities to some help to emerge from all tho
